Forum: audio Subject: playback suddenly stops when streaming

i searched around the FAQs & forums but didn't find anything - when i try to listen to any audio item longer than a few minutes using the embedded player, playback frequently stops and i have to restart the item from the beginning. i'm wondering if this is a problem on my end or if it's on the site's end. i haven't had problems listening to streaming audio on any other sites.

Thanks for posting. To answer your question, we need some additional information. What is the url for the Internet Archive item you are having an issue embedding, and the url for the site it is embedded on? Also, what OS/browser did you try this on?

i initially noticed it here:

http://uneasylistening-vfr.blogspot.com/p/april-26-2014-birthday.html

but it also happens on archive.org pages (i tried ones for this show and a few random ones).

i am using chrome (up to date) on windows 8.1. i haven't tried it in different browsers, i'll try that now. thanks!

I get the feeling that it's because you uploaded loads of different tracks in one file. If any of the bit-rates are different from track to track, your codecs might be struggling to keep up.

(Just a hunch..... I've done it myself :-) ).

that would make sense, but it's all one track, all one bitrate. my show is broadcast on the radio and i record it live.

oh, then I'm not sure, sorry.

(btw, listened to your Uneasy Listening page for 10m with no problems, using IE9 / W7. Hope this helps to narrow it down :-) ).
